  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together almond milk and flour. Add the cauliflower florets, and mix until they are coated. Transfer florets to the lined baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower is roasting, prepare the sauce. Combine honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, orange juice, orange zest, ginger, and garlic in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, whisking often. In a separate bowl, whisk the cornstarch and water together.
  • Add the cornstarch and water mixture to the boiling sauce. Bring it back to a boil and cook, stirring often until sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. The sauce should be sticky and thick. Remove sauce from heat.
  • Once the cauliflower is finished baking, pour sauce over florets. You may need to use a brush to completely coat the florets in the sauce. Roast for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove from oven. Top with scallions and sesame seeds to serve. Enjoy!


  • These taste best when eaten right away, but you can store leftovers in an airtight container for 3-5 days. Reheat in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes.
  • Use maple syrup instead of honey to make these vegan, and gluten free flour if needed.
